1) a sustainable totally green energy storage device for home and local community use

 

2) uses surplus electrical energy from local solar panels or wind turbines

 

3) stores energy in a common water tower design called a Grothe Power Tower, using readily available common materials (patent pending design)

 

4) produces electricity on-demand using energy efficient cold state PEM fuelcells for night or windless days anytime renewables are off-line or peak demands happen

5) no combustion or moving parts to wear out throughout design

 

6) flexible and scalable to meet local anticipated electrical energy and fuel needs for small, medium and large applications using specially designed stationary, mobile or portable Grothe Power Tower energy storage devices

 

7) lasts for decades

 

8) safe to operate near residential homes, local communities, schools, hospitals, nursing homes and businesses both downtown, in the suburbs, and in rural areas

 

9) solves multiple energy needs for homeowner and businesses (i.e. electrical, heat, transportation & industrial fuel, even clean water from any water source)

 

10) can be used for fueling vehicles either from the home, or at a roadside filling station or mall parking lot.

11) can be used for making clean potable water out of almost any water source.

 

12) ready to mass manufacture in 3-5 years

 

13) can be easily transported using container trucks, railroad cars, cargo ships or existing pipelines

Investing in the Grothe Power Tower Project

investmentsWhile we have a great idea and have put in several thousand dollars of our own money to produce a table top prototype model of our Grothe Power Tower project energy storage design (patent pending), we still need more money to expand this into some field test models and get us to the level of beta testing these with actual homeowners. We are open to funding opportunities from outside investors of any size. We are a for profit organization and do not give charitable tax deductions, but we do accept donations and gifts to support this project. (see below) We are applying for several new energy storage and innovative technology grants, and we have received requests from some individuals and businesses interested in investing and partnering with us. We have not yet found the perfect match.

investments7Our perfect angel investor would want to roll up their sleeves and work with us, share our passion about the project, bring a complementary skill set, and ideally be willing to spend at least part of their time here in Washington working with us. We are open to considering all offers, but keep this in mind: this is a long term project and will not be a quick return on investment.
